Hi guys,

1. I have a problem with the Combat Uniform Armor mod on a mac - I managed to overcome the bug preventing the game from starting, but after installing the mod the characters wearing the modded armors are not displayed on the inventory screen/during the battle (empty space/only the gun is visible). Characters without the modded armor look fine.

I've tried different things, the files are in proper locations (in Resources/ and Ruleset/ dirs, no errors when running) and nothing seems to work.

2. I have another similar problem with the Armored Vest mod. I can't see the characters wearing the armored vest in the inventory screen, they're displayed fine during the battle, until they're killed (then they simply disappear). Seems like the problems are somehow related.

These are my favourite mods, and the problem seems to be mac related (file names? paths? something graphics related?), so any help would be much appreciated!

I'm using the latest nightly build that was posted in this section of the forum. Thank you for preparing it, by the way.

A few screenshots of what's wrong (and links to those mods) would help.

EDIT: I would try replacing gifs with pngs, if the mod contains any

Thank you, Meridian.

I've OSX and Windows on the same computer and the same combination of mods works flawlessly on Windows.

On the attached screenshot you can see an invisible character - only a floating gun can be seen (look near the stairs).

Mods:
http://www.openxcom.com/mod/combat-uniform-armors (characters can't be seen at all)
http://www.openxcom.com/mod/armored-vest (character is invisible on inventory screen, visible on the battlefield until he dies).

Edit: Tried replacing the gifs with pngs, didn't help.

Thanks for the screenshot... that explains a lot... when you said character I thought you're talking about "letters", now I see you're talking about "people".

Anyway, this is definitely a GIF issue... converting images to PNG will most likely solve it.

I am attaching a converted Armored Vest mod for you to try... if it works I guess you can convert the second mod yourself.

This works indeed, thank you!

I also converted the Combat Uniform Armors mod and attached it in this thread: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,1857.msg88465.html#msg88465
